LUBBOCK AVAIANCHE-JOURNAI—Sunday Morning, June 2\ 1976— D-13 Study Eyes Problems Of Coping ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) Many first-time mothers prepare themselves far better for childbirth than for the child care that comes afterward, a University of Michigan researcher says. “They take classes, exercise and read technical manuals to prepare for the delivery. But it seems to be assumed that when the infant arrives, natural instinct will take over. “In reality, the new mother finds she needs a lot of information and especially, reassurance.” said Joan Bowker. doctoral candidate in psychology and an instructor at the UM- Dearborn. “At this point, she almost invariably turns to one resource — her own mother.” This pattern appeared again and again in Mrs. Bowker’S study. “The First Baby: Crisis and Coping in the First Three Months.” She interviewed 60 women two days after their babies were bom and. again, after the first 12 weeks at home. Although they varied widely in age. education level and life styles. Mrs. Bowker focused her comparisons on their adjustments to motherhood. Different people play different roles in this transition, she found. Professional instructors *' > * ' v . ' }t"\ MR. AND MRS. 0. A. LAMBERT Shallowater Duo Marks Anniversary Mr. and Mrs. 0. A.

Financing Available Up to 36 Months to Pay are consulted about giving birth: the maternal grandmother is urged to come after the ba- bv arrives: and the husband’s emotional support is seen as crucial throughout the period. But the responsibility for a smooth adjustment lies within the woman “The women who were really unhappy during the first three months seldom blamed their babies.” the UM researcher said, “but took it out on themselves. “In many cases, the couple had just moved to a new house or apartment to accommodate the new baby, so they lacked neighborhood ties. Also, the birth of the first child tends to accelerate the husband’s career striving, so that he may work longer hours away from home.” Most of the women in Mrs. Bowker’s study had worked during at least the early months OPEN TODAY 10 A.M. TO . Honored With Reception of their pregnancies. Retaining ties with former coworkers and other friends helped alleviate feelings of being cut off from the active world. “The mothers who made a happier adjustment to infant care had foreseen that the baby would not absorb every moment of their time, and pianned ahead to either return to work or to get involved in some hob- bv. handicraft, or other home activity.” Mrs. Bowker said. “Thev viewed the baby’s arrival as an opportunity to expand their lives, rather than limit them.” “Birth control has granted women an enormous power of decision.” Mrs. Bowker observed. “This power is limited only by age. National research showi; that most couples who want children want two. and for health reasons, it is advantageous to complete the pregnancies before the woman is 30. To make the task seem less awesom. Mrs. Bowker suggests that women expose themselves to infants before their own is born — learn what a cry sounds like. WANT A SUMMER HAIRSTYLE?
